  • It doesn't. Never did. I make up my own mind and nobody else changes it. We are all allowed to make our own choices in life.

  • Other peoples choices within their marriage don't affect me because I have a great marriage, not perfect, but great, so I wouldn't change a thing.

  • This doesn't really apply to my marriage, but I have a crazy friend who "keeps up with the Jones'" and makes herself crazy comparing her relationship (and herself) to others' :\

  • They don't.

  • depends... I don't like my brother fiance, and it will effect the relationship between my brother and me if they do marry because I definitely won't see him hardly at all if they marry, and that sux because we are pretty tight..

    But a stranger.. it doesn't effect me at all, so I don't care who marries who otherwise, lol.

  • @matthewscandi This could apply to gay marriage or to polygamy or to polyamory or to really any relationship between consenting legal adults.

  • Im not quite sure I am understanding where your coming from with this, maybe a bit more info cause from what i am reading now, I am thinking why wouldnt someone elses marriage choices have anything to do with my marriage- two completely separate things.

  • More Gay Rights/Marriage posters... To answer your question, it doesn't effect me, currently.
